 * milestone:  3.7 => Future Release


 There was a [http://irclogs.wordpress.org/chanlog.php?channel=wordpress-
 dev&day=2013-09-21&sort=asc#m692791 lengthy discussion on this in IRC last
 weekend]. Consensus seemed to be:
  * Add a large list to `suggest` because pretty much everything proposed
 to be listed *does* enhance core in either functionality (e.g. exif) or
 performance (e.g. curl).
  * ext-mysql should be a requirement, because it is possible to have
 another package override this requirement, per johnpbloch.
  * The various caching and database drivers should not be in `suggest` at
 all. Or they can be, for situations where well-established plugins
 implement them (to me, this is just mysqli, apc, and memcache). I am not
 sure what the consensus was.

 But, rmccue expressed overall reservations as to whether we should even
 add composer.json at the moment. I'm indifferent, and think it would be
 best for us to reign in what clearly got out of hand here to figure out A)
 what our goals are and B) what kind of impact this actually makes. (We
 need to figure out what this improves beyond just johnpbloch's workflow.)
 Because this is so edge, and there isn't yet a complete consensus or a
 patch, I'm punting it (at bpetty's advice).

 I'm fine with this going in once rmccue, tierra, Rarst, and johnpbloch all
 agree on the approach.
